Creating record

Ginseng restaurant at Hotel Royal Orchid recently unveiled the world’s largest Maki Sushi and is all set to enter the ‘Limca Book of Records’ for this innovative initiative.

Big bite: Maki Sushi

For the Japanese people, Sushi is a festive food as well as a fast food.

It originally refers to the vinegar-flavoured rice itself, and later on to the rice with a slice of raw or vinegar-cured fish on top of it.

Maki Sushi or Makizushi is the most popular form of Sushi.

Traditional Maki Sushi is rolled with Nori (edible seaweed) on the exterior with Sushi rice and the other ingredients in the interior of the roll.

This attempt at establishing a record for the largest Maki Sushi at Ginseng
resulted in it being four feet eight inches in diameter, six inches in height and weighed
approximately 200 kilograms. The idea was spearheaded by chef Sudhir Nair of Ginseng at Hotel Royal Orchid.

The Maki Sushi slice, making it a delight for both the eyes and taste buds, consisted of the some exotic ingredients including vinegar rice, crab meat, flying fish roe (tobiko), pickled radishes and black sesame seeds. This event officially flags off the ‘Bangkok to Beijing Express Lunch Buffet’, which is a newly launched exclusive lunch menu at Ginseng.

The ‘Express Buffet’ includes a wide variety starting with four vegetarian and non-vegetarian appetisers to soups, Thai curry, stir fry, noodles, flavoured fried rice and much more.
